Word of the Day: Nubifragio

Nubifragio!

If you were swimming around the streets this morning like I was, then you must know the definition of Italian noun, nubifragio. Coming from the Latin nubifragium, it basically means a downpour, heavy rainfall, or a cloudburst. The word is made up of nubes and frangere: nube being cloud, and frangere (fragere) meaning to break. In other words, the cloud is bursting and it’s raining. I guess, anyways.

Example:
‘Ottobre 15- nubifragio a Roma!’ – Downpour in Rome on October 15th!
